Australia adopts International Open Data Charter
Commitment 2.2 in Australia’s National Action Plan
“Australia will build public trust around data sharing and release: We will do this by actively engaging with the public regarding how open data is being used to better communicate the benefits and understand public concerns, and we will improve privacy risk management capability across government.”
“Comply with international best practice on open data principles and participate in global fora on data:
• Adopt the International Open Data Charter and develop a high-level public statement with public consultation.”

The lack of attention to this commitment is understandable because of the OpenGov Leadership Forums in each state already scheduled for mid this year organised by OpenGov Asia. To advertise a closed door event for sectors and then reserve the right to reject a registration from that sector is not building trust.
To the C-level government experts and industry professionals who are addressing the important policy areas of big data, IoT and data centres at this conference, your mission for an effective digital government strategy needs to include the commitment made on 27 March 2017, by the Hon Angus Taylor.
